In Other Words Tuesday




"God does not speak simply to be heard.He speaks to be obeyed.Obedience is the Alpha and Omega of discerning God’s voice.: We have got to stop being selfish, and depending on ourselves for everything. We need to take our eyes off of ourselves, and make God our total focus in life. We have to start obeying our Father, instead of being disobedient children. God should not have to repeat Himself over and over again. Once is more than enough, clean out your ears, listen when He speaks to you. As the song says, trust and obey, for there is no other way my friend.

Oh, I love that song "Trust and Obey". We used to sing that with the children in our bible study class. But how important for us adults to remember that too. Great post and reminder.

God shouldn't have to repeat Himself! Boy if that isn't the truth. We do need to clean our our ears, our hearts and our minds and make room for Jesus through our obedience.
